SEW Much Fun!
It's a lot of fun to sew on cards. Adding just a little as a border can draw special attention to your card.
It's a little harder to notice in this one with the french knots. I went around twice in a wavy pattern, crossing over at different spots. Yes, french knots takes a bit of time, but very relaxing to do. I did these ones while watching (sort of watching) TV.
I used the large scallop Big Shot die as a border for this block. Just a little sewing around two edges, with brads to "tie" the block together.
The flower was made with the five petal punch. I quilted the whole block which give it a nice look, but can be a little time consuming pulling the threads to the back just like on a fabric quilt!
SEW, IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED SEWING ON CARDS, GIVE IT A TRY!
